NARS Batch 1 Trainees: Awesome Nurses

A picture of mountains our nurses have to cross in order to administer medication to victims of the
typhoid outbreak in Datal Anggas (the farthest barrio of Alabel)

I am writing this post to pay tribute to the 1st batch of Nurses Assigned in Rural Service (NARS) trainees assigned in Sarangani Province. Their six-month training started last April 1, 2009 and ended September 30, 2009. The zest and endurance they have shown during the training made me think that these bunch of young nurses are simply amazing and awesome! I really, really admire your guts, young people!

Brave nurses navigating their way through steep mountail trails (if this is not utmost public service, I don't know what is this all about anymore!)

just to reach their destination and help multitude of people afflicted with typhoid fever

During the brief moment given to these tough nurses during the orientation of 2nd batch of NARS Trainees held last week at Tiboli Hotel, I couldn't help it but feel very proud and blessed to have known and been associated with these young people who have so much that lies ahead of them.

I will surely treasure the memories I had with these people and I am thankful to have been a part of their NARS training months.

Go on, young people! Soar high with the great and not so great experiences you had
with this NARS project. Make the moments you spent with our less fortunate brothers and sisters your guide in order for you to become better and successful people in the future!

Good luck, everyone!

Thanks Xyrabelle for the pics!
